The All Progressives Congress (APC) National chairman Adams Oshiomole has boasted that he would remove Dr. Bukola Saraki as Senate President within ten days.
This was revealed by Timi Frank, the immediate past Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress who was reacting to the invasion of the National Assembly by security operatives of the Department for State Security Services, DSS.
Mr. Timi Frank revealed that Mr. Oshiomole deceived President Muhammadu Buhari to depart for London after promising to remove the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, within 10 days.
Recall that President Buhari is currently on a ten day vacation to London after transmuting powers of the presidency Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo.
Mr. Timi Frank berated Oshiomole for denying his involvement in the attempt at destabilizing democracy in Nigeria by blockading the National Assembly in an attempt to impeach the Senate President.
According to Timi Frank,
“Why is Oshiomhole lying when every Nigerian knows that he is the one out to foist a new leadership on the Senate at all cost even when he knows that the APC lawmakers lack the two-third constitutionally stipulated number of Senators to legally remove Saraki and Ekweremadu? Nigerians must not be deceived, Oshiomhole is a dictator. He does not like anything democratic. He only mouths democracy when he has something to gain but when his interest is at stake like it is right now, he is usually forced to show the dictatorial stuff he is made of.
“Besides, having deceived President Buhari to leave for London and give him 10 days to remove Saraki, he is now quick to wash his hands off the dirty plot now that he seems to have failed to deliver on his evil promises”
Mr. Timi who expressed his extreme displeasure at the antics of Oshiomole further said,
“Thankfully, a friend just sent me a Whatsapp photo of Buhari purportedly watching Oshiomhole’s instigated malfeasance at the National Assembly gate. If that photograph is true, I want Buhari to know that he has been deceived by Oshiomhole. Nigerians want the rule of law and due process to be followed in order to deepen our democracy not crude tactics now being employed by Oshiomhole.
“Besides, any resort to self-help will never fly with Nigerians because they know the price those who fought for democracy in the country had had to pay to bring us to where we are today. Once again I call on Nigerians and members of the international community who are now rightly horrified by this coup against democracy in Nigeria to hold Oshiomhole responsible for any breakdown of law and order capable of truncating democracy in the country,” he said further.
Mr. Timi further urged Nigerians not to believe the actions of the Vice President who condemned the invasion of the National Assembly and sacked the DSS director for the invasion.
According to him, the APC are acting a script and intend to frustrate the National Assembly and destroy democracy in Nigeria for selfish reasons
